Which flour is better

Not only wheat: what else is flour and how is it useful? Briefly about the main thing.

Bread, noodles, pancakes, pasta, dough … Flour is the basis of so many dishes. It is difficult to say what would have happened if we had to remove it from the daily diet. Meanwhile, experts recommend for the sake of beauty and health to abandon products from white wheat flour. What are its alternatives and how are they useful?

Why look for a replacement for wheat flour

This kind of flour is easily digested, but does not contain such nutrients as minerals, vitamins or fiber, so it does not “feed” the body properly.

Its main component is starch or sugar. After eating wheat flour products, we quickly feel hungry again. This leads to an increase in calories. Fortunately, wheat flour, although the most popular, is far from the only one. This is well known to people with celiac disease who, because of the gluten contained in white flour, cannot use it.

Corn powder is rich in fiber and vitamins A, B, E, as well as magnesium and potassium. It prevents the development of diseases such as obesity, heart problems and cancer. Cornmeal is used for biscuits, pancakes, cakes. This is a very good substitute for wheat flour.
